Here is what Charlie did this year. He started out leaving poems with hints of where he can be found. After a couple of weeks, it was up to my daughter to search and find him without hints.
He announced his arrival by sitting on a wreath on my daughter's bedroom door.
He left a note for her. That is indeed a hair you see taped with the note.
I have several more pictures but trying to get them upload is a big 'ole pain right now. I will update this post as soon as I can. I have way too much fun with this tradition!
